I found this post I wrote when I first started beauty blogging a year ago but it got put into the Drafts folder and never got published…till today… *smiles*  Back then, I was trying to follow a rigid formula to write product reviews and it was boring!  Nowadays, I just write whatever pops into my mind…and it’s probably still boring, but at least, I have a unique voice!  Anyway, here it is, in its unedited glory…with very small pics…!!

Removing all your eye make-up before going to sleep is vital so that your skin can breathe and regenerate.  My ideal eye make-up remover is affordable, gentle to my eyes and the delicate eye area and extremely simple and effective to use.  After using up my previous eye make-up remover, Simple Kind To Eyes, I went and bought a new one to try out – Garnier Fresh Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover.

Product Testing


Drew an eye with eyeliner, painted on eyeshadow and put on some smudged mascara.  Soaked a cotton pad with Garnier Fresh Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover and placed it on the area for a few seconds.  Required two wipes to remove all make-up.

My Opinions

  • Likes : relatively quick and easy to use, affordable, doesn’t sting eyes
  • Dislikes : contains fragrance

Garnier Fresh Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover gets a 7 out of 10 for me…but I am still on the hunt for my ideal eye make-up remover.  Any suggestions?

    I like that you drew the eye on your arm, lol. My reviews kind of have a boring structure. Maybe I should just free-speak it too. Ah more changes, lol.

      @sahar awan, But I’m worried the oil is too rich and will cause milia…

    Great review Ling! I don’t like eye makeup removers that contain fragrances either. My favourite eye makeup remover is an oil-free Neutrogena one that I’ve had forever. Works quickly and doesn’t sting, plus no fragrance.

      @Rosemary, Funnily enough, I’ve never tried the Neutrogena makeup remover…even though I’ve tried a lot of their products…

    I love all Garnier products so I’d probably like this one even with the fragrance. I like the variety of your posts. Been searching the web for some good beauty blogs. I came across Taaz.com and use their makeover tool to try different looks too.
